88th RSC announces 2012 Strong Bonds program schedule

The 88th Regional Support Command (RSC) will host a number of Strong Bonds enrichment weekends during 2012 for married and single Army Reserve Soldiers and their Family members in the 88th RSC’s 19-state region of responsibility. The 88th RSC is headquartered at Fort McCoy.

The Strong Bonds program encourages a safe and relaxed environment where Soldiers and military couples can learn new skills that help prevent the disintegration of their most-important relationships.

Strong Bonds offers three programs.

The Marriage Enrichment Retreat is for married Army couples and seeks to strengthen the marital bond through marriage education, better communication and relationship enhancement.

The Single Soldier Life Enrichment Retreat focuses on helping single Soldiers develop skills necessary to learn decision-making, goal-setting and relationship-enhancement skills in a very interactive environment.

The Military Family Enrichment Retreat helps military Families work together, with the focus on skills that help the Military Family stay strong.

The schedule, by month, is:

February: 24-26 (Marriage Enrichment), St. Louis.

March: 16-18 (Marriage Enrichment/Single Soldier Life Enrichment), Kansas City, Mo.; 30-April 1 (Marriage Enrichment/Single Life Enrichment), Denver.
